Nothing I recognize. Notification area icons normally don't have the UAC shield.

Nice little poem there. check your msconfig for any strange startup files. And is that two anti-viruses I see?

You should never have two anti-virus programs installed because it can cause system instability.

As far as that Icon goes, I have no idea because I do not use Vista,

maybe because it's parental controls you have to be logged on as admin or maybe launch the main program to make changes to it. perhaps the icon is there just so you know the protection is enabled

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
